I have done my BAS (Yes!!) and now have to do DH's, but first with work committments I could not join the plastic inchies swap through Aus/NZ Art Quilts. I enjoyed watching Deb make hers, then on Wednesday a lovely surprise Deb had made a set for me. Thanks Deb

I had another surprise on Tuesday night with this lovely postcard from Heather. We belong to the same local patchwork group but both enjoy our fiber art more than quilting.

Back Again

Another month has gone since my last post. How time flies!! I have been busy with work and then hassles with changing the Internet to wireless and then back as it would not let us network our computers.

My DH went to watch the rugby at the weekend so the embellisher was given pride of place in the lounge after finding a new light bulb and replacing needles after they had shattered, I had fun finishing off projects for my embellisher course with Dale at Thread Studio.

Wool embellished onto the felt in a cross hatch pattern and the flowers and beads sewn on.

Purple slushies (wool/silk mix) purchased from Dale at the Thread Studio then purple wool embellished on top, cut into 1 1/2" strips and woven together. The flower is embellished organza ribbon.

Postcard and ATC. Knitted background having been embellished onto painted vliosfix. The knitted squares where embellished too and the sewn on with colonial knots and the flowers attached. I can sit and knit for no reason now other than wanting to make backgrounds for art.

An ATC foliage swap with Deb here in Kalgoolie and Cait in Bunbury who Deb and I hope to meet soon.
